There are government publication that will most likely support your jurisdiction's frost depth number.

We're on 2012 edition but sure it says the same thing. That tells me that foundations need to extend below the frost line, but not where the frost line is. I know the frost depth in our area (36") - just need to show documentation on this for legal a matter.

I need to know where in the IBC, or referenced standards, I can find the required frost depth. I know it is in chapter 3 of the IRC but am unable to find it in the IBC.
